BBS British Bryological Society - Mosses Week 7-13 April

The British Bryological Society are meeting this week based at Scargill House, Kettlewell 7-13 April. I am going out with them most days. Great. Here we are in Raisgill in Upper Wharfedale, near Yockenthwaite.

Below is Leucondon sciuroides on a rock.

 And here on another rock is Orthotrichum anomalum - you can see the setae (capsule stalks) - on many other species of Orthotricum the setae are shorter so the capsule is almost immersed in the leaves.

Well, I'd like to tell you about Friday and Saturday but they will have to wait.
